Marble pillasters

Ref: 3409


Only on the site for curiosities sake as they're sold now, but how often do you find a pair of pure white marble pilasters behind someones garden shed? I can only guess that they were rescued from a d...

Mahogany panelling

Ref: 3392


2 types here, one was originally above the other, but they can easily be sold as 2 lots. We don't generally take panelling in as its notoriously difficult to use due to having to cut into the panels w...

Teak columns

Ref: 2920


Great pair of teak columns which are 96 inches tall, or 8 feet. In generally great condition though there is a chipped area to the base of one of the pillars as shown. They are not free standing colum...

Head door heads

Ref: 2728


These came from a house in the New Town in Edinburgh where they had apparently been bought back in the '50's from who knows where, but obviously somewhere grand.The bulk of the door head, the dental w...

Chairs chairs chairs

Ref: 2722


Not just a pic with a weird perspective, its just a big and a small one. We have about 140 of the larger stacking chairs, surely enough for a couple of restaurants and about 20 of the smaller ones whi...

Alabaster pot

Ref: 2691


This was actually my grand mothers, who was a sculptor and professional flower arranger back in the '30's-'50's and she used to pick these things up for her work, usually in the markets around Pettyco...

Old school desks

Ref: 2586


These are the 6 surviving desks from the old Nitshill primary school. Long abandoned in an upstairs cupboard, a bit dirty and needing a bit of TLC, but if we've bought them then we think they m...

Numbers

Ref: 2578


Not sure what these were but they came from a farm where they may have been for marking out plots ? Anyway, I love the earl font. Double sided on metal and we have quite a few of them....

Small doors for wall cladding

Ref: 2525


Ideal for cladding a wall in a cafe etc, we have lots of these available from an old golf club house. See our 'door,shutters' section for more details....

Spiral staircase

Ref: 2492


After many years, another spiral staircase. Lovely thing but quite small in its dimensions, so it wouldn't conform to modern building regs, but could be used where you didn't need them, for example, a...

Cast metal shelving

Ref: 2429


We uncovered these in a mews cottage in Edinburghs New Town where no one had been since the mid '80's, and they'd been put there a long time before this we were told. Cast iron shelving believed to ha...

Ships lights

Ref: 2365


These came from a house up north where things had been hoarded for years and years, and in amongst the microwaves and rotting timbers we found some lovely things, including these, and there are half a...

Kettles,kettles,and more kettles

Ref: 2357


Well we all have our little foibles, for some it's stamps or train spotting, for some it's football or brick collecting, and for this particular gent it was kettles and companion sets (more about that...

Griddles griddles griddles

Ref: 2345


No pots, no kettles, just a whole pile of old griddles from a job. Big, small and all pretty old, we thought they'd make a nice display....

Ancient electric fire

Ref: 2341


I'm a bit of a sucker for an old electric fire, though this isn't one I'd plug straight in ( unlike the 1930's one in our office which happily passes its PAT test year after year). Dinky little enamel...

Wash stand thing

Ref: 2340


Furniture, sanitary or miscellaneous? where to list it? Its a Georgian stand for a wash basin, which would have sat in the hole at the top-the sort of large bowl people like to have on their ta...

Teak worktops

Ref: 2333


We hardly ever see this stuff now, but we've just done a job where we've managed to get half a dozen teak worktops, and some of them are a fair size (which I will list later). Not much in the way of t...

Moulds for a canon

Ref: 2328


Probably the only ones for sale in the country, and as good to look at as a lot of artwork, castings for a canon, carved timber. We also have the former or mould for the inside tube-ey bit. The...

Old wooden joiners clamps

Ref: 2278


Not sure how many of these we have left as we bought them a couple of weeks ago, but lovely old tools these, turned wooden threaded spindles, a work of art really....

Servants indicator

Ref: 2261


We see these from time to time, this is a fairly typical example made by a Glasgow company for a house with 3 bedrooms. when a bell or button was rung, an electrical current made one of the little sta...

School clocks

Ref: 2245


I'd say these are from the '60's, and we have a few of them, mostly single sided, but a couple of double sided ones too. They would originally have been connected to a central operating machine (The M...

Folding iron gate

Ref: 2208


Such a nice thing, and a work of art really. This gate folds away to be less than 10 inches wide and yet folds out, oh so easily, to be 59 inches wide (5ft) and at 67 tall its a fair old size. Lots of...

Metal grilles

Ref: 2201


Quite a few of these in just now, the larger ones were used as floor grilles in a church and measure 6 inches by 44.5, and there are 47 of them (as I type) and the smaller ones (photographed inside th...

Dr Frankensteins steampunk electrical gadgetry

Ref: 2172


I couldn't resist these. I guess they must be from the 1920's during a time when even the humblest electrical workings were thought good enough to warrant a bit of fancy detailing. On the inside there...

Several boxes of old bottles

Ref: 2154


We must have about a hundred of these. We came across them in a basement and they appear to be a fairly random selection of re-used old bottles (some are old milk bottles, others are Kilner jars, but ...
